I think Professor Honeycutt would be the ideal option. Not necessarily in the "charlatan" aspect, but in his struggle to dodge around severe problems and not address them until it's almost too late.

They share a particular spectrum of cowardice - that being hiding from persons who look toward him for knowledge and going into hiding to avoid particular enemies. But still owning up to that what he did was a terrible mistake, and is capable of imparting wisdom to those he thinks deserves it.

I think his speech patterns are more suited to a "Wizard" as well.

There's also the shared "professor" title from the 1939 movie - relating to Professor Marvel, who Dorothy met when she was running away from home.
Tempestra would be a better Wicked Witch of the West. Can Alopex be Bill(ina)? Or the China girl/princess? Would Muckman be a good Jack PunpkinHead? Metalhead would obviously be Tik-Tok, and maybe Needlenose would be The Gump. Now we just have to get the okay to dig Venus out for Ozma...

Snakeweed could say “How do you like ‘dem apples?”
